Schweinfurth, thirteen years previously, as to whether the Welle was connected with the Shary and thence with Lake Tehad, or whether it flowed into the Congo.It needed only a few more weeks of perseverance and progress towards the west, and the explorer would have attained his end and reaped the reward of his labors. He was within a few days march of the Congo and was about to push onwards, when letters from Lupton Bey brought news of startling import and put an end to further investigations.Dr.

Junker had for a considerable time been quite aware how the country around Khartoum was harassed by the revolutionary action of an agitator who professed himself to be the Mahdi, that is, a deliverer invested with a supernatural mission. He had been apprised that the powerful tribe of the Dinka had taken arms, and was threatening the military settlements and zeribas on the Bahr-el-Ghazal- and had further learnt from Lupton Bey, who was the representative of the Egyptian government in that province, that the route between the Niam-niam country and the landing-place of Rek on the Bahr-el-Ghazal was completely blockaded, while the Mahdists were at the same time making an alarming progress.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
